Does you know Jesus Christ?

Options

Hi guys.

I don't know where to post this, but the Lord has been laying it on my heart for the past few days to tell people about Jesus. This burden is so strong that I have felt sick and very desperate to reach out to others and tell them about Jesus. I asked my Pastor if there were any ministries I could do through my church to serve God, but all he said to me was that if there was anything, he'd let me know. God has been driving me to serve Him so bad that I don't think I can wait much longer for an answer from my Pastor, I am desperate here and I don't think he understands just how urgent it is to witness to the lost. People are dying and going to Hell. That is no laughing matter.

So I am going to write a post and witness to the lost on here...

Dear person much loved by the Lord,

Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners like you and me. Have you ever thought about what happens after you die? I have. It has brought me much anxiety thinking about it, because I know that this life does not last forever and one day, we all will die.

A lot of people today do not think about where they will spend eternity, and this thinking is a big mistake.

But what happens after death? The Bible is the only book that can tell us what happens to us after we die. God Himself wrote this great book; it is probably the most important book that was ever written.

Do you mind if I quote some Scriptures? Some people get offended when I quote the Bible, but I never do. Do you know why? Because I am a Christian and I believe that Jesus is my Saviour. The Bible says so. And with that being said, I will give you some Bible verses to help you and educate you.

So what happens after we die? The Bible teaches that man is a tripart being composed of spirit, soul, and a fleshly body. At death, our souls separate from our body and goes back to God to be judged by Him. God will judge everything we do in the body, whether good or bad.

But here is the bad news. You see, nobody is truly a good person. You see, only God is truly good.

Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen anything? Have you ever hated anyone? If you have, then you have sinned. Killing others is also a sin, and yet you hear every day on the news that someone has murdered somebody else. Why? Because mankind are sinners and on their way to a burning Hell.

Rom 3:23 :
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Now that you know that no one is good in God's eyes, how do we then become good? How do we become vindicated before God? The Bible teaches that we need to have Jesus' righteousness but the only way to do that is to come to Him by faith:

Rom 10:9
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:10
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

So you see that you need to believe in your heart that God raised up Jesus from the dead, and you also need to confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord.

If you die without Christ, you will spend eternity in Hell. In our modern world today, people think that Hell is a place of never-ending parties and good times. They think that all of their friends will be there. But that is far from the truth. You would think that these people have never read the Bible, or that they have never taken it seriously.

The Bible teaches that Hell is a place of never-ending fire and torment, and my dear friend, that is not very much fun (this truth has scared a lot of people). It is a place of tears and no hope. It is darkness and loneliness. You won't be able to see anyone at all. It is eternal separation from God Himself. Since God is the Source of Joy and Happiness, that means that everything apart from Him is tears, sorrow, and no happiness. And that does not sound like very much fun at all, doesn't it?

So my dear friend, for your own eternal safety, I pray that you will accept Jesus Christ into your heart today, and make Him Lord over your life.

If you have done this, you need to find a Bible-believing church where you can grow in God's Word. And you also need to find out what God wants you to do with your life, so that you may serve Him.

Blessings,
Jacqueline

    Great post!

    I am a Christian as well and read your post. God bless you for having the desire to reach the lost! All Christians should be doing the same. The thing is, we need to win people to us and then win them to Christ. They have to see that we care and love them before they will listen to what we have to say.

    Does your town have any kind of outreach you could get involved in? Like a homeless shelter, soup kitchen, feeding kids in the park (our town has that) You don't have to wait on your Pastor to find something within the church, you can get outside of it and be a part of something in the community. Meeting peoples physical needs first will allow you to ministery to their spiritual needs next.

    Don't forget, you are probably around people every day that need to hear about Jesus. Ask the Lord for opportunities to pray for others, show them you care, and witness to them. You might be surprised the places he can use you. (I prayed for others while hooked up to my chemo, there is no place God can't use you if you are willing).

    Your post was a few months ago, I hope you are doing well and found a place to do God's work :)

    For fear of the Name, many will ignore this :-(

    I am head over heels in love with Jesus Christ. I do not beat others over the head with it, but try to live as a disciple of Christ and bear witness both by my example, as well as my words of encouragement. I have been both immersion baptized as well as slain in the Spirit. I have been chosen to suffer, therefore, I am blessed. I ask God only for the grace to bear my cross of suffering. In the manner of John of the Cross and Teresa of Avila, I strive to enjoy the suffering that is granted me, as through it, I bond more fully with Christ. Example? In April, I broke 5 ribs and my right shoulder. What a blessing! Why? During Holy Week, my pain was in the same shoulder on which our Lord carried His cross. And, my ribs were painful right where the soldier's lance pierced His Body. Only belief in Christ can bring joy from suffering.

    Colossians 1:24 is one of the most difficult and misunderstood verses in all of scripture, but I seek to live it. Philippians 1:20 and following represent my view: It is a much greater thing to depart and be with the Lord, but I have suffering to endure for the sake of Christ's Body, the Church. Therefore, I ask the Lord to apply my sufferings for the sake of others. Amen!

    Yes, I know and love Christ

    Yes, I know and love Christ as my Savior!! I can never turn away from Him because He is so much in my heart. I know how you feel. I sometimes want to run across to doors and knock on them and ask the people if they know Jesus, but I do not do this. I do talk about Him online and share my love for Him on my Facebook. I know I have some friends who are Pagan and some who are gay and it breaks my heart, so I do my best to be a good example of what Jesus is and what he stands for and that He loves everyone in hopes that one day His light will shine into their hearts and they will know Him.  I have a brother who kind of believes, but his wife does not, and I tried one time to reach out to them but it did not go well so I now pray for them daily, sometimes more. I wish that everyone knew Christ and that everyone would rise at the second coming, I want all to be my brothers and sisters in Christ! I know now that God will place people in my path who need Him through me, so I wait for those learning/teaching moments and do my best not to despair because it is all in His time and will, not mine.
